Stile-Free short walks from Berkswell

The new k/gs replaced over several months up to Jun-2012 opened up 3+ Stile-Free short circular walks starting and finishing at the Bear, Berkswell.  The three shown on the
Bing Map are summarised as:

No Distance Route outline
2S 1.3 miles  Leave the Bear car park & follow Walk2 towards Benton Green, after 2nd k/g T/R on Path M207, T/R on Spencer's Lane and follow the Lane back to the Bear.
2T 2.1 miles  Leave the Bear car park & follow Walk2 to Benton Green, after 3rd k/g T/R to join ACW, follow ACW to just before k/g & long board-walk then T/R onto Path M205 and follow to k/g near Spencer's Lane  T/R on Lane and follow the Lane back to the Bear.
2U 1.8 miles  Leave the Bear car park & follow Walk2 towards Benton Green, after 2nd k/g T/R on Path M207, cross Spencer's Lane and follow Baulk Lane to the driveway to Ram Hall then follow Walk 2 back to the Bear.

Other variations using the same paths can easily be devised!

Notes:

  1. These short walks will not be detailed in the 21 walks book, but can regarded as more variations of Walk 2.  They are therefore numbered 2x to link them to 2 & 2A (fully described in book), 2B (the other half of 2 using the A route backwards), other short walks starting at Berkswell station (e.g. 2C could become the next in this series to become Stile-Free, following walk 2 to Baulk Lane, but then using Path M191 down to Truggist Lane (and over the bridge we installed on 20-Apr-2011) and then to the join 2A at the Greenway.
     
  2. Sometime soon I intend to add an index to other short walks such as 13C and 10C (both used for Warwickshire Walking Festival evening walks in 2005 or 2006), and maybe others.
     
  3. The Bing Map opens with an "Aerial View" background.  You can instead select an "OS Map" background, or several other options.
     
  4. The Bing Map shows all the paths in different colours, but at the scale the map opens at the paths often overlap.  If you hover your mouse pointer over a path, the colour of that path changes to YELLOW and the label (e.g. 1, 2 or 3) for that path lights up.  This will make it easier to see the path you are interested in.
     
  5. The Bing Map when zoomed in will separate the paths a little, so they look like separate paths going bside the other paths.  This will help you see details (and to highlight one path easier as in note above).
     
  6. All 3 walks above make use of the new k/g at Site 7 installed on
    WP 20-Jun-2012 Enhanced Map.  Walk 2T makes use of both k/g instaled that day.
